Founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young in 1837, “Tiffany, Young, and Ellis” operated as a stationary store in Lower Manhattan. The name was shortened to “Tiffany & Co.” in 1853 when Tiffany took control with an emphasis on jewelry. The company has introduced the world to breathtaking and previously unknown diamonds and precious gems; using them to forge famed medals and jewelry throughout the years. In 1877, an insignia was struck onto a police medal of honor by Tiffany; an “NY” logo that would later be adopted by the New York Yankees in 1909.
In 1919, Tiffany & Co. made a revision to the Medal of Honor on behalf of the U.S. Navy. This “Tiffany Cross” version was exceptionally rare, and only awarded for combat. The “Tiffany Cross” Medal of Honor was donned by worthy recipients for over 20 years. Tiffany & Co. eyewear, a more recent and central development to the Tiffany brand, came of age in 2006 during its inaugural show in Paris, showcasing the elegance and high-quality it’s namesake is known for.
